One of Isaac Newton’s last theories was that taking in a good view while eating aids both in digestion and in the ability to squeeze milk out of coal. Prove him half-right with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of globally inspired cuisine and drinks at Deluxe Beach Restaurant in White Rock.
Deluxe Beach Restaurant whips up a menu brimming with international options running the gamut from small plates and pastas to surf 'n' turf. Plunge tongue-first into a single-serving vat of apple-smoked cheddar broccolini soup with tomato bruschetta ($9) before taming a troupe of tiger prawns with pancetta ($15). Grilled beef tenderloin with filo-wrapped mashed potatoes ($29) and an optional shiitake port demi peppercorn sauce ($5) argue compellingly for terrestrial proteins, but patrons may prefer to ransack fabled undersea orchards with the lobster, ricotta, and pear ravioli in champagne-shallot cream sauce ($33). This Groupon can also be applied toward a three-course prix fixe menu ($40), or Alex Trebek's favourite potent potables from the extensive wine list, including Cupcake's 2009 chardonnay and Avalon's 2008 cabernet sauvignon. Deluxe Beach Restaurant's modern décor allows diners to eat elegantly on the upstairs ocean-view level, or browse the beach surface from the main level's cocktail lounge and outdoor patio.
